Bikini Body Guide
I started a new exercise program called BBG or Bikini Body Guide over 3 months ago. There is an app, called SWEAT, that guides you through the workouts, even timing them out for you. It’s really simple to use, and, you can do most of the workouts from anywhere, which makes it ideal for travel.
I also can easily do it at home. To learn more about BBG and the SWEAT app, be sure to check out this post here (after week 1).
Changes I’ve Noticed
From the side view (above)… the difference is much more noticeable. I definitely have noticed a huge difference in my tummy. My legs look more toned in the thigh area.
I’ve lost some fat around the rib cage/bust area, and my bras are loose. My weight difference is VERY minimal, but I didn’t set out to lose weight. I was more interested in strength and toning. Muscle also weighs more than fat. I went from 115 to 110.
To find out more about the specifics of the program, be sure to read this blog, covering the basics. I remember in the beginning, I could barely do a lunge. My body wasn’t used to more traditional exercises after years of Tracy Anderson. Now, I can easily do lunges, squats, and any other exercise she throws at us. The only issue I have with the program…is that it keeps introducing new exercise equipment like barbells. I feel like I could have a whole gym in my house by now. Instead of scooping up all the gear, I’m simply improvising.
In the last week or so, I’ve fallen off the healthy eating wagon, and added in a bit more sugar, but I’ll get back on it!
I have to eat what I want, but in moderation… otherwise… forget it! The minute my mind thinks I can’t have something, it’s the very thing I crave. I can’t do extreme diets or restriction so again I just use moderation. I eat sugar. And, with bread I just limit to 1 or 2 slices of whole grain bread per day. Avocado toast with egg whites is a go-to. I eat a lot of oatmeal (Think Thin is my favorite). Between meals, I drink green tea and snack on apples, and pears. I also really like yogurt with granola and honey. For dinner, I eat a lot of chicken, baked, pan fried, grilled with broccoli, sweet potatoes and salads. For me the key is… NO DIET. The D word gets me into trouble. What is your favorite healthy meal? Share in the comments below.
Will I Stick With This?
There is no question this program works and I love having the option while traveling, but I’m not sure I’ll stick with it.
I think as summer approaches, I will do more outdoors like hiking, jogging, biking, etc. We moved here to Telluride to enjoy the outdoors… so that is definitely a must again this summer.
I also want to try pilates. I haven’t really done pilates before, only Tracy Anderson…so I’m thinking about signing up for classes.
I’m glad I have the SWEAT app to turn to, and use while traveling, but again not sure I will continue through the summer.
